I have not heard of the cancer, and my knowledge of smoking only tells me that it contains uncountable numbers of carcinogens. And taking Wikipedia's word on it:
Quote from: Wikipedia:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mesothelioma
Unlike lung cancer, there is no association between mesothelioma and smoking, but smoking greatly increases the risk of other asbestos-induced cancers.
All that is on earth will perish:
But will abide (forever) the Face of thy Lord--full of Majesty, Bounty & Honor.
Then which of the favors of your Lord will ye deny?
